presidential race one month ago tonight. take a look at this. president obama and mitt romney were essentially neck and neck, all throughout the summer, and then, boing! president obama very quickly and very dramatically jumped out to a six-point lead. what happened all of a sudden to cause that sort of jump? well, right here was president obama's speech at the democratic convention in charlotte. what you're looking at thereafter is what people call the post-convention bounce. after what had been a static race, president obama not only jumped ahead in national polls like this gallup daily tracking poll, but he also jumped out to a sizable lead in all the key swing states. here's what the race looked like around this time last month. president obama was up in virginia, up in in new hampshire, almost could not find a swing state poll that did not show president obama increasing his lead. this is what a post-convention bounce, and a good one, looks like. and it was a bounce that lasted for a while. a pew poll released more than a week after the democratic convention showed president o

. the romney-obama debate received an enormous audience, even bigger than we expected. i was at the last debate in danville, the vice presidential debate between joe lieberman and dick cheney, but i think the analogy here, the model here, is really the 2004 vice president ideal debate. then as now, you had a first debate where the incumbent president -- in that case george w. bush and in this case president obama did not do nearly as well as expected. obama i think had a much tougher night than bush did in the first debate in 2004, and it came to the vice presidential debate to try to kind of right the ship and steady the momentum, and in 2004 dick cheney was able to do that in his debate against john edwards, and there will be that pressure, i think,n joe biden tonight. really to change the storyline. i mean, the polls suggest that there's a clear advantage for romney from that first debate, but it's kind of stabilizing, where nonetheless, if ryan has a strong night tonight, congressman ryan, it will reinforce a storyline and amplification. that will be a problem for democrats. >>

birth control and demand and you have lefty brain. if you review what the skids asked obama in taping of the presidential special, you can't blame mitt for not showing up. they asked about gun control, same-sex marriage, bullying and, of course, obesity. sorry, they seemed choreographed enough to be white house press conference. you think obama might have learned the prep work does him no favors. this is a fun-size version of "the view." i prefer a president who doesn't play to preteens and not interested in placating their corn certains if detention is human rights violation. president, not a guidance counselor. even though his foreign policy suggests otherwise. i want to know if he can deal with china, not pigtails and runny nose and hankers for justin bieber. but it beats jim lehrer and maybe he could kill two birds with one stone. yes, i said kill big birds! kids are props who can't vote. >> dana: true. i was so glad when i saw that romney said no, sorry, i don't have time for this. great decision. >> greg: eric, if romney had gone ahead and done it wouldn't they have made him look l

presidential election, and the race is as tight as it can get. today's gallup poll of likely voters has president obama at 48% and mitt romney at 48%. john dickerson is our cbs news political director and, john, in the primaries, governor romney took a hard line against abortion except in cases of rape, incest or the health of the mother. but today, he said this in the "des moines register" newspaper: then, governor romney followed that with this today: >> i think i've said time and again i'm a pro-life candidate, i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood. >> pelley: so, john, i wonder, can you help us untangle all of this? >> reporter: well, this is a very tricky issue for governor romney, who's about to arrive here in western ohio. he's had a number of positions on abortion. in these comments, when he was running for governor in the 1990s, he said he would protect abortion rights, but now he has the opposite view. when people heard these comments to the "des moines register," they thought he was moderating his position
